Community Event Planning

The Community Events Administrator will help you navigate the permit process for public parks, roads and venues. Reach us at 403-851-2535 or email us

Contact us early in your planning process. Major events require application submissions a minimum six weeks in advance of the event date.

Why do you need a Festival and Event Permit?

A Festival and Event application will identify when organized activities are planned in a park or open space so we can avoid scheduling conflicts.

It also ensures groups who are organizing activities in public spaces have the appropriate insurance and licensing.

Permit holders have priority and permission to use the space over non-permit holders.


Please complete and email a scanned copy or deliver it in person to 101 RancheHouse Road.
